[Learning English through Songs] When you say nothing at all - Ronan Keating


It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may, I can never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

The smile on your face let's me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all
All day long I can hear people talking out loud
but when you hold me near you drown out the crowdtry as they may they can never define
What's been said between your heart and mine
The smile on your face let's me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best, when you say nothing at all
Ohh...The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand says you'll catch me where ever I fall
You say it best when you say nothing at all
You say it best when you say nothing at all (8x)

A Quick And Basic Exposition Towards Biblical Honor Killing

By Stacey Massey

There happens to be a people on this earth who have happened to quote biblical honor killing to be the most reasonable and the perfect way to affirm their faith as Christians. They have strongly asserted that there are a people in the Christian faith who asserts themselves in this faith by practicing the tradition of biblical honor killing; a characteristic that has been mostly dominant of the Muslims community. They are so quick to quote that the tradition of honor killings has been so fervent in the Old Testament and that anyone who did not abide by the laws of the living God then, he was surely deserving of death.

If it is found that the boy had not shown a repentant and humble attitude towards his parents during the time of the correction, then he is subjected to public execution. This sought of public execution of a defiler of the law of God would take place in form of throwing stones at the transgressor of the law. This was done in the name of purging out of all evil from the whole of Israel.

Also according to the book of Leviticus, a woman who happens to be the daughter of the high priest was not to indulge in any kind of sexual activity. If found to have done so she profaneth her father, therefore she shall be burnt to the stake by fire. There are also other laws among the 600 that God gave to Moses, which had heavy repercussions of death by stoning or burning if the laws were not followed to the latter.

Actually, one can certainly see that a rebellious boy is the one who is being talked about here. One actually also notices that women and other girls are not mentioned on the holy texts. One of the most significant and endowed reason why this is so because the rebellious son was both a drunkard and gluttonous.

Personalities that happen to indulge in these kinds of acts are actually obliterated or annihilated in different ways. There are stories that have happened to be true, of husbands and brothers shooting their wives or sisters to death. In the ancient times, before Christ, the act of stoning people to death was a common feature of punishing the transgressors of the law.

There happens to be another argument that has been brought in relation to the homage murders. These kinds of murders happen to have everywhere in the world. The murdering of women and children are also traverse and global.

The cultural settings of the deaths are what actually differentiate them. Take a look at the Middle East and the Asian cultures; they tend to take center stage more often largely because women are more prone to spark conducts of jealousy to their male counterparts. Serial killers in the western world have been known to kill women and subject them to rape.

A very terrific example is whereby Abraham was more than ready and willing to sacrifice his only son Issac.Nowadays; Christians of today do not condone such zealous killings. The biblical honor killing surely is a subject that needs to be subjected to more discourse.
